Introduction Please visit my blog at KatieAlender.com. My first young adult novel, BAD GIRLS DON'T DIE, will be released by Disney-Hyperion Books in April '09. In the meantime, I write dog shows, scripts, and other books. When I'm not working or writing, you'll probably find me sewing, reading, hanging out in the backyard, or chilling with my dog, Winston.

In addition to blogging at my website, KatieAlender.com, I blog every Tuesday at The Debutante Ball.
